This flourless peanut butter cookie recipe is delightfully simple and naturally gluten-free. These cookies are easily made with ingredients that are probably already in your pantry, making them perfect for when you want to bake a sweet gluten-free treat without heading to the store first. Top your easy gluten-free peanut butter cookies with a sprinkle of freshly-ground sea salt right before baking to give them a delightfully sweet and salty finish. We love pairing these cookies with vanilla ice cream for peanut butter cookie ice cream sandwiches or enjoying them on their own with a refreshing glass of cold milk.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free dry-roasted peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda, vanilla and egg until well combined. Stir in peanuts. Roll into 1 1/4-inch balls; place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork. Sprinkle salt on tops of cookies.
  • 2
    Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden around edges. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

  • Help your cookies bake evenly by using a cookie dough scoop to keep them all the same size. If you don’t have one handy, an ice cream scoop will work as well.
  • Spoon a little gluten-free vanilla ice cream between two peanut butter cookies and make delicious peanut butter cookie ice cream sandwiches. Roll your ice cream sandwich in chocolate chips to add a delightful chocolate crunch.
